The Reward of Mentorship Relationships

Every #mentorship#relationship will look very different, but a great mentor can add game-changing value at any stage of a #career.

Tintri‘s Charlie Collins joins Microsoft and ex- AT&T#sales#leaderCarson V. Heady to discuss.

A “mentor” is defined as an experienced and trusted adviser. This can take so many forms, so be open to where this relationship can evolve.

They can provide a constructive playbook, helping choreograph our moves across core components of our roles. They can also guide us through challenging experiences based on their own wisdom.

As Charlie said, “sometimes you have to fly on your own” – mentors create eagles, prepared to soar solo.

Mentorship can be very intentional – with a request or recommendation, a cadence and framework. It can also be inadvertent, as we lean on trusted advisers when we need their counsel for specific scenarios.

You get a limited number of career summits, but the reward can be amplified greatly if you form meaningful mentorship relationships – to grow through learning or to teach.
